GOLD COINS REFINED BY FIRE (REV 3:18) By Andre Austin The Gold coin talked about in Rev 3:18 may be a reference to a coin used to pay the Ferryman who gave souls a ride in a boat made of pure gold to protect them from the fires of Amenta (underworld) as you go to heaven. Recall Jesus comes to save like Noah Luke 17:26. In the Egyptian heaven your daily course in the sky is within a boat. The ferryman is called “he who looks backward” apparently because being alone in operating the ferry he must look in both directions” (Ancient Egyptian Literature By Miriam Lichtheim p.35). These eyes had to be healed by Tefnut (lukewarm). Tefnut as a Lion-goddess would protect both of these directions morning (sun eye) evening (moon eye). So having “salve” is good to have for ointment for the eyes is this proper context. Recall the first sentence in Rev chapter 3 is lifted from the Egyptian texts. Many elements in Chapter 3 of revelations resemble The Egyptian Book of the dead rendering an accounting of his earthly acts before a Tribunal presided over by Osiris. “I have given bread to the hungry, water to the thirsty, nor cheated on weights, clothes to naked, a boat to him who had none. Save me, protect me. You will not accuse me before the great God. I’am a man with pure (refine) mouth and pure (refine) heart. Those who see me say, Welcome (The African origin of Civilization By C.A. Diop p. 290). This is similar language of Rev 3:17-21 with the doors opening up and having sepulchral meals from the eye of Amen-Ra. Egyptian souls were forbidden to have a Hot or Cold heart as outlined in Rev 3:14 The meal they get to feats off of is called Tefnut (Maat/right and Truth). Tefnut is spit out at its birth, nicknamed “heat of heaven” or Lukewarm at Rev: 3:15. In Nelson’s Dictionary of the Bible (1986) states: “ The Lukewarm church at Laodicea, however, needed something greater than eye salve to heal it faltering spiritual vision” Editor Herbert Lockyer p.940 Again like I said in the beginning this good vision by a ferryman is needed and proves the implied boat not mentioned in Chapter 3 of Rev. Additional the first word of Lukewarm is Luke which is associated with healing (Col 4:14). The Egyptians associated Tefnut with healing and putting the eye of Ra in proper place and order At Karnak, Tefnut formed part of the Great Ennead and was invoked in prayers for the health and wellbeing of the Pharaoh Tefnut was connected with other leonine goddesses as the Eye of Ra. Lions were associated with the Sun and gold. Tefnut literally translating as "That Water", the name Tefnut has been linked to the verb 'tfn' meaning 'to spit' and versions of the creation myth say that Ra (or Atum) spat her out and her name was written as a mouth spitting in late texts. It should be no secret that Jesus heals blind people by spiting, ( mark 8: 22-26),in their eyes is straight up Egyptian from the beginning to the end. Spiting was a popular thing to cure the blind and even had the Roman Emperor Vespasian doing this act to proclaim he was the new serapis (Osiris).
